"You would never know Lakeland has an undefeated Track and Field team. football rules! The Track and Field team has been undefeated for several years, they have won districts for many years consecutive. The team even competes in the off season with USATF. They just won an invitational meet at Shippensburg University, they beat 27 schools in their division. Not one word was mentioned at school. Nothing on the morning announcements. Nothing."
"This school is a joke! All the guidance counselor cares about is football and it's cheerleaders! It's really gross, the ceiling tiles are falling out, especially in the Spanish class, there are mice running everywhere, and in the heater in the art room there is mold growing! Also, when cleaning the cafeteria, they use the same mops to CLEAN the floors AND tables! They would start on one side of the cafe, clean the floor, clean the tables, then go to the other side and do the same thing WITHOUT at least changing the mops!"
"I went to this school. I hated it. Their are only a couple of teachers that even try hard and they're probably no longer teaching there. I graduated about 8 years ago. It was very cold during the winter because the heating didn't work well although it's possible that has been fixed. I doubt it. I got good grades but I know that it had nothing to do with the teachers--it's because I read the textbooks. The teachers like to have chats and talk about themselves. Many of them are conceited and favor sports and the more popular groups with well-known names. I suppose it's because Jermyn is such a small town. There are some advanced classes but I really think the teachers are lacking. The school wasn't covered in garbage but it was very dusty. I didn't like it overall and I think getting a diploma from Lakeland is as good as getting a GED."
"I was bullied in the 2007-2008 school year, and barely anything was done about it. No punishment at all. The guidance counselor just talked to the students who were bullying me. Also, if you don't or can't pay attention in class, you are bound to fail. The teachers don't care at all. Most Lakelanders will agree."
"I have a daughter and son who attend Lakeland. My daughter and my son are high honor students but do sometimes complain that they are'nt challanged enough. Although I am very proud of both of them and they speak very highly of a many good teachers at Lakeland."
